Last week I tested out working in the office again for the first time since last March. I thought I would love it again. I ended up hating every second of it- wasting time on commute, paying for parking, no where to eat, office was lonely, water cooler talk wasted my productivity. It was exhausting to be “on” in person the entire time. I couldn’t bring myself to go back this week. I didn’t realize wfh allows me to enjoy my job and gives me the time to balance life and friends outside of my job.

Effective strategies to deal with burnout, please. Wfh, been dealing with just too much work, it's reduced a little bit now but I am in a zombie like state now that I still feel busy without actually achieving much, and feel exhausted at the end of it. Is it even burnout or am I just glorifying my inefficient working style?

My family has a 115 year old agency. I've been working there for 15 years as a work from home processor. The agency hasn't been managed and things are in dire straights. They lost their office manager 10 years ago, Commercial CSR 5 years ago, Personal Lines CSR 3 years ago, and an agent 3 years ago (all to retirement) and roles were never replaced. It's a mess. They are asking me if I'd like to take it over. I'm so burnt out from the workload and low pay. Is it worth it to try and save it?
